Mercedes-Benz driver who was pushed down I-35 by 18-wheeler sues for $1M




The Mercedes-Benz driver who was pushed down a stretch of Interstate 35 by an 18-wheeler in August filed a lawsuit against the driver of the semi and the trucking company.

The plaintiff, Leon Morris, is suing for more than $1 million in damages.

Morris claims the 18-wheeler's driver, Raymond Morales, acted with gross negligence on August 20 when he smashed into his Mercedes-Benz on Interstate 35 near St. Mary's Street while changing lanes.

The force of the crash spun Morris 90 degrees counterclockwise, to a perpendicular angle to the 18-wheeler. Morales apparently didn't feel the impact of the crash and pushed the Mercedes down the highway before coming to a stop, police said.

"However, due to the obvious difference in size, the 18 wheeler did not initially feel the crash and continued driving," reads a police report. "A short time later the driver noticed something was wrong and immediately pulled over. There were no indications of any road rage and no intentional acts and the contributing factor was listed as driver inattention."
